MAKING EXERCISE POPULAR
Now that the new Michigan department of physi-
cal education is an assured addition to the Univer-
sity, not only the question of who the new director
will be buf also certain problems relative to the
workings of the new system and its ultimate value
present themselves, and not the least among these
is the possibility that the new arrangement may be
the means of popularizing exercise.
Most of us incollege are not ardent physical cul-
turists, and the comparatively small number who
are naturally equipped become the nucleus of the
various athletic teams about the campus. Most of
the rest of us apparently take little or no interest
in keeping ourselves fit and in fighting trim. An
all-around physical development is a great life as-
set to any man. Those who were in the army or
navy during the war learned its value if the stay-
at-homes did not; they learned what physical fit-
ness means to a man and how it increases his abil-
ity. Some, of course, have not kept up their exer-
cise since their discharge, but their service training
at least taught them its value.
Admitting, then, that physical perfection is an as-
set and worth all it costs, let us ask ourselves how
many college students really take advantage of the
opportunities offered them for physical develop-
ment. The percentage is relatively small. Go over
to the gym any afternoon; there may be a con-
siderable crowd on the floor, but keeping in mind
the seven thousand men on the campus, to say that
a building from three to five times the size of the
present gymnasium would hardly house all who
should be out would not be far from the truth.
Of course gym work is not all that is meant by
exercise; walking, riding, tennis playing, and the
like offer large possibilities for physical develop-
ment, and it is to be hoped that, among other things,
the encouragement toward exercise and health will
be one accomplishment of the newly forme'd physi-
cal education department. Elective gym classes
and the like may help do it, and certainly one point
which the new director should emphasize should be
the installation of more tennis courts. The right
sort of man could make exercise seem a pleasure
and not a task. If the new department goes at the
thing in the right way, linking the general exercise
with the Varsity team system,, workouts can be
made popular. An awakened interest in physical
culture of this sort will certainly be an asset to the
University through providing a larger and better
field of tryouts, and an aid to the health of all who
go in for it.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2, 1921.
Night Editor-T. W. SARGENT, JR.
Every mark has its corresponding remark, to
paraphrase psych. The holocaust which hit the
Lits this Monday past, and the Engineers a couple
of weeks ago, has set going a multitude of tongues
not by any means limited to the nine-hundred-fifty-
two probationers. "Tightening up" on the grades
could hardly be expected to slip easily over the
campus palate; to a good proportionof Michigan's
students it was about the bitterest pill of the year.
f After all, what do marks represent? To the re-
doubtable thirty who garnered "all A's" they stand
for some pretty pleasing public.ity - nobody has
any objection to knowing that people are saying,
wherever they read the list, "He certainly is
bright." If the members of the thirty have gained
out of their courses something which they recognize
as really valuable, their A's will mean much more
than that. If - as has sometimes been the case -
natural good fortune in above-the-ears qualifica-
tions has enabled them to slide into A's more easily
than the average man garners a C, the record can
mean little to them. Effort is a precedent condi-
tion to any real gratification from success, and few
men can feel much pride in honors unearned.
At the other extreme, there are the sad recip-
ients of uncompromising E's and unpromising X's.
A good many students in any university come un'
equipped in mind or in previous training for col
lege work, and the cold, hard blow sealed in the
little white envelopes is penhaps the most merciful
way to save money for them and time for the Uni-
versity. On the other hand, many a student has
dated his scholastic success from some forgotten E
or other. Notice that a whole semester of attend-
ing classes has been in vain is a prime, little awak-
ener. It gets the study habit going.
The "in-betweens", the great groaning mass who
got C's when Lord knows they coached Pete up
on the whole course the night before and he pulled
an A, we have always with us. There is no doubt
that a little higher regard for real scholarship is a
great need of this as of any other university, and
the general army of mediocrity in which most of
us find ourselves is doubtless just the place for us,
considering the state of our attitude. But there is
a large class of hard and honest workers, who get
a good deal out of their studies which never ap-
pears in their bluebooks, but which will put in a
most noticeable appearance in their later life work.
The list of our best alumni is by no means coinci-
dent with that of our best scholars; and anyone who
so far overstresses the scholastic side of college life
as to forget the differences in human capacities is
taking a pedantic viewpoint indeed.
Perhaps the most frequent cry of the great aver-
age multitude is "favoritism", and nobody who has
gone through two to four years of college life will
deny its justification in all too large a class of in-
stances. The professor who comes out, as one did
recently, and says in absolute sincerity "I don't
care how good looking you are; it makes no differ-
ence tc me if you can play athletics or play tiddle-
dewinks; your 'line' is nothing in my life; but I am
honestly going to try to give every student in this
class a fair and equal chance to make good, and
mark him not on his personality or opinion of me

A Short Story
In the calm of the summer evening they lingered
on the garbage heap. "William," said the first, "I
wish I could help you to some of this full dress
suit." The-other's eyes shone with appreciation of
his friend's thoughtfulness. JIhen he regretfully
shook his head and continued contentedly to eat a
battered tin can. "No, thanks," he returned, "you
know I'm off those starched foods for life."
And as the summer haze deepened around them
the two Billy goats munched on.
How many, fooled by slight success,
To false conclusions jump,
For oft a budding genius
Grows up a blooming chump.
